OK, so does that mean we will be using either pre-made or transferred characters that are:
light sided Jedi Knight base class
light sided Jedi Consular base class
light sided Sith Warrior base class
light sided Sith Inquisitor base class

that can choose the Jedi Guardian combat style, and only that style for now, and playtesting it?

Or, does it mean that we will all be Jedi Knights who are using the Jedi Guardian combat style?
If you would like to hear more of my thoughts, consider joining our guilds on Satele Shan, "Shock and Jawa" of the Republic and "Full Metal Jawa" of the Empire. Thank you for reading!

Sounds like we'll make a Consular, Warrior or Inquisitor and choose the Jedi Guardian CS. Guess one could make a Knight as well, but they can already pick the Jedi Guardian.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

I would think if you’ve got a light side Mara/Jugg or Light Side Sorc/Assassin, you could also transfer those to the PTS to use for the test.

I just want to know would it be possible to access the PTS through the SWTOR launcher through steam?

You can install PTS through Steam. Go to the SWTOR page on Steam and scroll down a bit to where it says "Want to participate in the STAR WARS™: The Old Republic™ - Public Test Server? Click here to install it now."

Just logged in to steam, and the PTS is updating, seems like they are getting ready,


EDIT: Finished Updating, servers are there but showing offline (But it now shows I've chars on it, but it didn't do that before)

200 FPS @4k on the server select screen. Pretty good. The most I get on the non-pts server select screen is 120.

Oooh, do I smell some optimization updates snuck into 7.0?

We will be posting a full breakdown of what to expect once PTS goes live. I know that doesn't outright answer your question, but I just want to keep conversations consolidated and as organized as possible.

As of now, expect four different threads to be posted when PTS goes up.

1) Detailed breakdown of what this phase of PTS will cover
2) How to access PTS
3) Feedback thread
4) Status updates thread (this was mentioned in the livestream)

Is there an estimated day that the PTS will go live? Or is that still up in the air this week?
